AKH Rep offerings for 2020 and 2021 in light of HNZ changes

Thank you to all AKH Rep stakeholders who provided us with feedback on the options we were considering. Having considered your feedback we are now in a position to communicate our 2020 Representative offerings. As noted in earlier communication we are conscious of providing quality and positive experiences for our players in the representative space and we trust what we have come up with for 2020 will achieve these outcomes. At the end of the 2020 rep season we are committed to reviewing the offerings as part of a continuous improvement cycle.

 

U13s 

No changes as per HNZ for 2020. Auckland teams will attend the final Collier and Hatch tournaments.

2021 –  AKH will choose two of either hosting a National Invitational U13s Tournament; Australian Exchange or Canterbury Exchange for our U13 teams.  TBC end of 2020.

Note – AKH will continue to advocate for a continuation of Hatch & Collier tournaments and our recommendation to HNZ that participation objectives can be achieved without the need to remove historic and hugely successful tournaments.

 

U15s 

No changes as per HNZ for 2020. Auckland teams will attend the final U15 National tournaments.

2021 –  AKH will choose two of either hosting a National Invitational U15s Tournament; Australian Exchange or Canterbury Exchange for our U15 teams. TBC end of 2020.

Note – AKH will continue to advocate for a continuation of u15 national tournaments and our recommendation to HNZ that participation objectives can be achieved without the need to remove historic and hugely successful tournaments.

 

U18s 

No changes except two teams per gender will attend the same tournament. Boys in Hamilton and Girls in Wellington.

With no national tournament in 2020 AKH is planning to offer an opportunity for 21s players to play in Tier 2 of the NHC (dependent on interest) OR Play in an International Tournament (July) OR have an Australian Exchange (March).
